Dr. Meyer received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering (Biomechanics) from Michigan State University. The primary topic of his research was lower extremity biomechanics during sports injury. He then completed his post-doctoral training at the Centre for Bioengineering at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland in cartilage tissue engineering and mechanobiology. Meyer teaches Introduction to Biomechanics and Tissue Mechanics. Recently, he has established the Experimental Biomechanics Laboratory with the goal to advance experimental biomechanics understanding by providing practical training to students and advancing the boundary of knowledge through translational research. He has published 29 peer-reviewed journal articles and was an invited speaker (Session A, Symposium 9) at the IOC World Conference on Prevention of Injury & Illness in Sport, April 7-9, 2011 in Monte Carlo, Monaco.
